i have a buff orp x silkie. the dad was the silkie and i know that they can take some time to mature, but i thought that the orps were earlier maturing. this one looks like a buff orp and not a silkie. the bird is now 8 weeks old but i have been hearing what i believe is the beginnings of crowing from what i thought was a female. this usually only happens when i turn on the light above the pen and get them started for the day. (i still have this one and it's sibling in my house/basement while the coop & fenced area is in the works.) i haven't heard it later in the day/evenings when i check on them. am i just going crazy or is this really the right time to start hearing a crow out of a future roo?
